Waiting on Wednesday #10

Waiting On Wednesday hosted by Breaking The Spine

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

The Falconer (The Falconer #1) by Elizabeth May

Set For Release On: September 19, 2013

Summary From Goodreads

18-year-old Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined to a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s social events – right up until a faery kills her mother.

Now it’s the 1844 winter season. Between a seeming endless number of parties, Aileana slaughters faeries in secret. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, every night she sheds her aristocratic facade and goes hunting. She’s determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city’s many dark alleyways.

But she never even considered that she might become attracted to one. To the magnetic Kiaran MacKay, the faery who trained her to kill his own kind. Nor is she at all prepared for the revelation he’s going to bring. Because Midwinter is approaching, and with it an eclipse that has the ability to unlock a Fae prison and begin the Wild Hunt.

A battle looms, and Aileana is going to have to decide how much she’s willing to lose – and just how far she’ll go to avenge her mother’s murder.


How freaking awesome does this sound?! I’m slowly immersing myself in the steampunk genre, as much as I can get my hands on, and this would be a fantastic continued foray into that kind of world. Add the fantastical with faerys and you have quite the story! I do worry about the romance, but my hope is that there is no insta-love and it develops naturally, well…as naturally as a human/faery romance can. Also, how about that cover? Freaking awesome, especially when you pay attention to that gun she is holding, got to love steampunk weapons!

Does The Falconer appeal to you? What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^
